Nature Trails near Latchford, Ontario

Welcome to Latchford!

Situated on the shores of Bay Lake and at a bend in the majestic Montreal River, we are uniquely located with pristine water on three sides of Latchford. Founded in 1904 and incorporated as a town in 1907, we have evolved from a being a major lumbering and pulpwood community which once simultaneously featured three major sawmills and two pulp operations to primarily a dormitory and retirement community. While our residents are few, the one thing we have in abundance is natural beauty and it surrounds us in all seasons.

With a population of 420, Latchford is a tight community with many housing opportunities. Latchford is a great place for an outdoorsman to reside, we boast about our great outdoors!

Latchford is the gateway to the James Bay Frontier and a great place to reside or to start your vacation on a summer or winter getaway by boat, canoe, foot, or snowmobile.

In addition to Latchford being the Hiking Trailhead of the North, having a magnificent beach, great recreation facilities and waterfront camping facilities.
